Putting first things first for Massena Operations means that our most important priority is to operate in a safe and responsible manner. We believe that our people are valuable assets. Our standard practices, industrial hygiene and environmental monitoring programs, and training initiatives are intended to ensure that no one is injured.
We are actively involved with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ensure long term preservation of the environment. Our state of the art fume treatment systems scrub emissions from our smelting process to protect the air. Carbon filtration units and on-site water treatment facilities along with water reduction and reuse engineering initiatives limit the effect of our processes on rivers and ground water supplies.
Massena Alcoans are committed to operating in a safe, responsible manner which respects the environment and the health and safety of our employees, customers, and the community in which we operate.
